Here is a contribution. The crew is gathering around the special CN box car to learn about proper loading of LCL freight. The car has clear plastic panels and motion measuring equipment to show the effects of rough car handling.

Car was kitbashed many moons ago, was the subject of an article in RMC.

I like that Bob, was there a prototype


I took this at a MR show a while back, it's a coal mine scene set in 1970's Britain

Not this week but :: Era current, Railroad Rheidol (South Wales)


1' 11" Guage built to haul timber down to the coast climbs 600ft in 12miles max grade 1/50 locals decided it was easier than horse and cart so passanger buisness got big, Then tourism got big in South Wales and the trains have just kept running.

That reminds me of the test car they made years back with a curved track (dipped) inside with a steel ball and a light on top and if you started or stopped too fast the ball would roll and touch the end walls completing the circuit, triggering the light...Game over!


Old Photo but i something worth posting.

Pulling a PRR Passenger car and caboose as a excursion is my NS Dash 9. Hes Giving the Future investor's a good look at the rail line and construction.

Railphotog, well done. I saw pics of the real thing and yours is very much the same.

Steve B, that urban / inductry look and feel is awesome. Does the catenaries actually have power? Great shot of your loco
and rolling stock too. Your last shot is awesome, if somewhat sad for the ALCO:( The weathering is well done

johntealon30, looks like a "mean machine". Cool! Thanks for the pics

conrail92, like the view down the tracks. Keep posting away.

Trucula, Nice proto shot

Great pics guys, thanks for sharing

Great work so far everybody!

I took a bunch of photos this evening looking for one good one for this month's photo contest. These are all of the area around the pond at Cooley's Blue Ice.

Been copying some of my older slides using my digital camera, thought I'd post this one that sort of illustrates our current weather - COLD! Not too much snow though.

Photo was taken on a diorama, looking through a station platform. Engine is a custom painted Atlas S-4. Snow is cooking flour I liberated from the wife's kitchen.


Avid People Watcher
